Now, CBI hands over reports of 20 PEs in coal scam to CVC
The delay in handing over the files was due to completion of all legal formalities and whether any of the documents used in these cases was required for some other case under investigation with the agency. CBI has, so far, registered 18 FIRs in connection with its probe in the coal scam.

CBI sources said that files were sent in a sealed envelop to CVC which, in turn, will analyse and give its report to the Supreme Court within four weeks. A Supreme Court bench headed by Justice R M Lodha had Friday last directed CBI to place the documents of all 20 cases within five days before CVC for its perusal and the corruption watchdog was asked to file its report in four weeks. Today was the last day of the apex court deadline. The court had asked the CVC and two VCs to give their suggestions whether the cases can be closed or CBI can go ahead with the filing of charge sheets in them. DIG Ravi Kant Sharma had told the bench that he had given opinion for filing charge sheets in two cases in which the agency has filed closure reports on Thursday.
